During the first quarter of this year, Keri Russell (Felicity
) and Matthew Rhys (Brothers and Sisters
) starred in the freshman season of the FX network's series about KGB agents undercover in the U.S. during the 1980s. Now Amazon.com has begun taking pre-orders for home video releases of The Americans - The Complete 1st Season
for both DVD
and high-def Blu-ray Disc
. These listings are prior to the official Fox announcement for the title, though, so instead of a street date Amazon merely says "This title has not yet been released. You may pre-order it now and we will deliver it to you when it arrives.
" Pricing is available, however, currently showing $49.98 SRP for the standard DVD and $59.99 SRP for the Blu-ray (you can, of course, guarantee your copy right away at a discounted price, if you order it using either of the above links). There are no other details available so far at Amazon's entry, although there is some early box art (shown below; note that Fox items placed for pre-order at Amazon THIS far in advance will very often have a package art design change by the title the title is formally announced, which is a while down the road!). We'll update you further on this title, of course, just as soon as we find out anything more. Our thanks to one of our readers, "Matt," for the heads-up about it.
